Amid experiences of 12 of 17 Congress MLAs in Meghalaya, together with former chief minister Mukul Sangma, more likely to change over to the TMC, the celebration, in an editorial titled ‘Incompetent Congress’ in its mouthpiece ‘Jago Bangla’, stated that it’ll enterprise to different states to place up a struggle in opposition to the BJP.
“The Congress has serious problems. Whenever any of its leaders join the TMC, it criticises us. It seems that its West Bengal unit chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury has more problems with it than the central leadership,” it stated.
“The Congress has failed to put up a fight against the BJP. On the other hand, Mamata Banerjee and the TMC have shown how to defeat the Modi-Shah juggernaut. That is the reason why the TMC is getting requests to open units in other states. Leaders are willing to join us. They feel that Mamata Banerjee is the alternative face. The TMC can’t be blamed for incompetence and incapability of the Congress to fight against the BJP,” the editorial learn.
Referring to Banerjee’s proposal to arrange a joint steering committee through the August 20 opposition assembly convened by Congress president Sonia Gandhi, the mouthpiece stated that nothing has moved ahead in that path since then.
“The Congress is limited to its air-conditioned rooms and social media. They haven’t taken any initiative to build the opposition alliance. They have even failed to build up a movement against the BJP. Be it Goa or Tripura, it is the TMC which is fighting on the streets,” it stated.
The editorial asserted that the TMC will proceed to extend its power and enterprise out to different states.
“Our party supremo wants a pan-India national alliance against the BJP. We have never said that an opposition alliance will be forged without the Congress. But if the Congress can’t perform its duty, then we have nothing to do. They can’t blame us for their incompetence,” it stated.
In a large jolt to the opposition Congress in Meghalaya, 12 of its 17 MLAs led by Sangma will be a part of the Trinamool Congress on Thursday, stated one of many defecting lawmakers H M Shangpliang.
The growth is a significant increase for West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee, who has been attempting to broaden her celebration’s footprint past her native state.
The TMC is attempting to enter Tripura’s political area in a giant means by contesting a bitterly fought municipal election. It will even contest the meeting elections in Goa with the intention of pitching Banerjee firmly because the foremost anti-BJP opposition voice.
The TMC has been up in arms in opposition to the grand previous celebration over its alleged failure to struggle in opposition to the BJP.
Last month, the connection between the Congress and the TMC reached a brand new low after Banerjee’s celebration took a dig at Rahul Gandhi’s defeat at Amethi within the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, questioning whether or not the Congress would erase the defeat by a Twitter pattern.
The bonhomie between the Congress and the TMC was strained just lately after ‘Jago Bangla’ claimed that Banerjee, and never Rahul Gandhi, has emerged because the face of the opposition in opposition to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
